Gael Greene reports on Insatiable Critic today that Michael “Bun” Hunyh, of Mai House and Bun, has taken over at Rain — and this time, the restaurant’s owner, Stephen Scher, thinks the chef is going stay. Hunyh has developed a reputation as something of a rover, but according to Greene, Scher thinks the current deal is too good for Hunyh to walk away from: “We have promised each other we are committed to this project.” Huynh claims this is his first equal partnership. “I had a bad partner at Bun,” he tells Greene. “Now is the first time anyone gives me an even deal.”
